Here are a few nail polishes I’m finding myself rotating lately! There’s a couple of pastels, which I am obsessed with at the moment (along with the rest of the blogging world), a brighter coral colour and a fail-safe nude. All the info you need below!
Essie – Fiji: A beautiful light pastel pink, this is fast becoming one of my go-to shades for spring time. I love all my Essie polishes because the brushes are so wide and make application super quick and easy. Even though it’s a light colour, it’s still very pigmented (although I apply 2 coats so it looks completely opaque).
L’oreal Perfection Colour Riche – Lemon Meringue: I absolutely love this shade. It’s a really subtle, creamy yellow, which in my opinion are pretty hard to find. Similarly to the Essie, the brush is very wide (especially considering the thin bottle)! You don’t get tons of product for your money, and the skinny bottle slightly concerns me when trying to balance on an uneven surface, but at £5, I think this is well worth it!
MUA – Bright Coral: Considering this is the darkest shade of the bunch, it is the only one I had to apply 3 coats of to make opaque. However, considering it cost a mere £1, I really can’t complain! The colour is not too in-your-face, but still bright enough to be noticeable on the nails. When the sun starts to rear its head I like to add a little pop of colour somewhere in my look, and I think nail polish can be a lovely subtle way to do this.
Barry M Gelly – Lychee: This is a great nude. It’s quite pale so it’s still a pretty shade for spring, and for me nude nails look fab all year round. The only thing I don’t love about this is the formula. I know a lot of people rave about it, but for me it’s just a little too thick. I find it can clump or look streaky unless you make sure to apply it really evenly. Still love the shade though!
What are your favourite spring shades for your nails? Do you prefer lighter pastel shades or do you like to wear more bright colours? Or maybe you mix it up, like me!
